The third slate of games in the MLS is Back Tournament saw two more Homegrown standouts and some familiar faces earn a spot on the MLS Team of the Week for their efforts.
Portland Timbers forward Jeremy Ebobisse gets one of the nods up top after scoring a clutch equalizing goal against LAFC that clinched his team first place in Group F, while Seattle Homegrown star Jordan Morris leads the pack in the midfield after the winger put in one of the most dominant single-game efforts we've seen in the tournament so far in the Sounders' 3-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps. Morris wasn't the only Homegrown to earn a selection, as Philadelphia Union center back Mark McKenzie earned a spot after a spot for his standout shift against Orlando City SC, while FC Cincinnati's Kendall Waston took the honors as the other center back opposite McKenzie.
The players on the latest Team of the Week contributed five goals and a total of $5,000 which the Audi Goals Drive Progress program will contribute to MLS club academies, which helped produced the likes of Morris, McKenzie and Nick Lima.
